Mama Glow Latham Thomas on Mothering Ourselves First

Mama Glow | Latham Thomas | Wellness | Doula | Self care | Motherhood | Guest | Atomic Moms podcast | Host Ellie Knaus | Parenting |

Named one of Oprah’s Super Soul 100 visionaries and “Top 100 Women to Watch in Wellness” by Mind Body Green, LATHAM THOMAS is one hardworking single mama on our side. Maternity/lifestyle maven and NYC birth doula, Latham schools ELLIE KNAUS and our listeners on her philosophy of “mothering yourself first”, saying no to make room for yes, and slowing down this winter by tuning into the rhythms of nature (when it’s dark at 4 pm, it’s fancy pajama time!). Latham tells Ellie about her vision of radical self-care, an act that is radical at least in part because “nobody cares that you want to read a book or lay in bed or sleep in….” Nobody until now! Finally, we are recognizing for ourselves the absolute necessity of self-care in order to show up wholeheartedly for our loved ones. Latham offers advice on re-charging ourselves at least as often as our iPhones, letting go of our polarizing motherhood archetypes, and answers our “second round of childbirth” fears. She also gives Ellie marching orders for how to get her Mama Glow on in the kitchen (hint: it involves this fantastic Atomic Moms community) and you won’t want to miss her recommendation for a ritual each of us can start tonight to strengthen our relationship with our children and to prevent ourselves from getting “off-mission.”

    Just listened to this and am feeling so inspired. What’s the brand of the journal Latham recommended? I tried finding it on goggle but failed.

      Hi Meghan! I tried to google it too! But couldn’t come up with it! I’ll reach out to her next week and find out. I just bought mine. It’s got few enough pages that I don’t feel intimidated about having to keep it up. x Ellie
